Of the concertos you mention, the Grieg is definately easier---a consideration for a first venture.

Someone mentioned the Schumann, but IMO the Schumann is quite difficult--as is the Rach II. Mozart #21 or 23 would be excellent---maybe Beethoven #1 ...

Best of luck,
Mat D.

Thank you everyone for the replies. I didn't expect so many! : ) I think that I will probably end up playing the Grieg. I still have a couple songs I have to finish learning before I start it so I have a little more time to think about it.

Of the two you listed here Grieg is for sure the more manageable one. However, I think it is still a very challenging piece for a 'first timer' if you know what I mean.

I would recommend an easy Mozart, K414 for example or Haydn D major as a starter. Just my $.02

I have to agree with Andrew. The Grieg is sometimes called an "easy" concerto, but I don't find it particularly easy to play or learn. The cadenza and parallel thirds (and finger twister leading up to it) in the first movement are two places that can be challanging, and the last movement is a real finger twister. Give some of these places a real hard look before you decide to jump in. If you can handle them, great. If not, there is no shame in putting it off for a while.

Somebody mentioned the Schumann concerto. I absolutely love this concerto, but I would recommend staying far from it. It is not a virtuoso concerto, but is very difficult to play none the less.

Two further recommendations: Mozart #17 or #24 (I like the 24th. Also, I encourage you to look closely at Beethoven no1 (this, actually, was the first one I studied --years ago, I must have been 11 or 12 at the time, and it still remains one of my favorite to listen to and play --(I especially like Artur Rubinstein's recording). As for Saint-Saens 2, it's in the same boat as the Grieg (it's sort of a standard student/competition concerto - but it is of an advanced level).
